Families Volunteer!

Volunteers … Now more than ever!

Lutherhaven Ministries would not be where it is today–among the largest and most respected outdoor ministries in the nation–without the faithful time and talent of 75 years of volunteers. Your camps were built through the efforts of thousands of devoted servants of every age!

Volunteers are always needed—all year long—to help make Camp Lutherhaven and Shoshone Mountain Retreat operate successfully. There’s always plenty to do around camp, from day to day upkeep to special projects. 

Come as a family and spend a day, weekend, or longer serving at Camp Lutherhaven or Shoshone Mountain Retreat. Cleaning cabins, washing windows, teaching life skills, painting walls, doing dishes, pounding nails, leading hikes, building, fixing, organizing…

…your beautiful camps can use your help, now more than ever!

Contact us for details about volunteering your family anytime during the year, for any length of time! We often can provide volunteers with meals (when served) and lodging or RV space.
